Urological cancer: For localized prostate cancer, does technology equal progress?

  • Author(s): Cooperberg, Matthew R
  • et al.

Recent evolution of prostate cancer treatment reflects technological arms races driven by economic incentives rather than high-quality evidence - as exemplified by proton-beam radiation, recently found markedly inferior to far less-expensive alternatives. Another study found promise for focal treatment, but much research is required before this could become a standard option. © 2012 Macmillan Publishers Limited. All rights reserved.
